IDS uEye ML Family – USB 2.0 series


The USB 2 uEye ML camera series is a reasonably-priced and compact industrial camera with USB 2.0 interface and next generation CMOS sensor technology. Its small dimensions make the camera ideal for applications with space restrictions. Thanks to its robust metal housing and lockable connectors, the USB uEye ML can also be used in harsh industrial environments. The 8-pin Hirose connector highlights the versatility of the camera by providing two general purpose I/Os as well as optically decoupled trigger inputs and flash outputs.

The USB 2 uEye ML industrial cameras are fitted with successful e2v CMOS sensors and are available in monochrome, color, and NIR versions, delivering outstanding performance in the near infrared range The cameras offer a host of sensor features, including line scan mode (UI-1240ML, UI-1250ML), log mode, and four freely-selectable shutter modes, making them suitable for a wide range of applications while ensuring outstanding image quality.

Lightweight and space-saving!- Cost-effective compact camera

With dimensions of only 40 x 40 x 18 millimetres and a weight of around 37 grams, the cameras are ideal for space-critical applications.

It’s so easy!- Plug & Play principle

The cameras are automatically detected in the system and are immediately ready for use. Buy a camera, connect it, receive an image – it couldn’t be easier!

Easy integration!- Many fields of application

The cameras provide a convenient single cable solution for data transfer and power supply. This makes them ideal for many applications, e.g. in robotics and microscopy.
